Off we go again! After a seasons use some additional stuff needs doing so decided to get the engine off to sort out a binding tilt tube and at the same time get the hull up to Osprey for a clean up and to get the transom boxes properly fixed as my efforts last year have not stood the test of time!

Also replacing hinges, catches etc with good quality Protex ones as the old ones were not up to the job. Getting the tubes cleaned up a bit more and some diamond tread patches fitted. Probably fit a second battery and charging circuit. Getting some nice fishing rid holders made etc etc. hopefully back in the water end of December...

Didn't Honda have a problem with their saddles/brackets breaking? I'd give the saddle castings and main components close inspection whilst you've got them in bits.
